Thanks to Maria, my husband and I bought a home in the Bay Area of California. Even though she is an agent in Palm Springs, Maria was very familiar with Northern California and we felt very comfortable using her as our agent instead of a local agent. Maria took the time to sit down with us and listen to all of our concerns as first time home buyers. She made us realize that we were able to buy an actual home instead of just a condo, which was something we never thought we could do. She was always prompt for our meetings and always worked with the highest degree of integrity. She went above and beyond her duties as a real estate agent, and I have even been approached by the sellers asking for her contact info to work with her. She made both parties feel very comfortable in an unfortunate short-sale situation and it was obvious that she had only the best interest of her clients in mind. When I hear that anybody is looking for a home in the Bay Area, I am very quick to recommend Maria as their agent because we could not have been happier with our experience.
